Australian promising all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has been withdrawn from the five-match ODI Series against Sri Lanka starting from 21st August at R Premadasa Colombo. Marsh was a part of the team which suffered a 3-0 whitewash against Sri Lanka in the test series that finished yesterday.

“It’s a big summer ahead for him,” the Bupa Support Team head coach told media following the third Test defeat. “We’ve obviously got some quality allrounders in our one-day squad anyway, so we get a chance to freshen him up and ready to go for South Africa and moving forward.”

Mitchell Marsh is an important member in the 50 over format. Mitchell Marsh played an important knock of 79 in tri-series including West Indies and South Africa. In the finals of the tri-series, Marsh contributed with the ball taking 3-32 in 10 overs which helped Australia to win the title.

Australia will be looking to bounce back in ODI Series after a poor test series. Australia are top of ICC team rankings in ODI’s with a hefty lead. After the ODI Series, Australia will take on Sri Lanka in two T20 internationals. Then they will take on Ireland in one T20 match in South Africa and then five ODI matches against South Africa.

Mitchell Marsh did not have a great test series with ball and bat in trying conditions.  He picked 2 wickets in the 3 match test series.

The Australian team has a lot of cricket in the coming months which including test series against South Africa and Pakistan at home, Chappell and Hadlee series with New Zealand.  Then they will ODI Series against Pakistan. A much-needed rest for Mitchell Marsh will help him to perform much better.

Australia then will tour India in February which is their biggest challenge.
